Early user testimonials
When someone was saying my name to get my attention I was able to recognize the rhythmic vibration and knew someone was calling my name.Isaac W.
Buzz alerted me that the water was running. I always accidentally leave it running. It’s those little things and the seemingly little ways that Buzz has enhanced my awareness.Sharif R.
It helps me a lot when I’m outside. If there is a siren, police car, or whatever, I can be aware and look around me.Phillip S.
My life has really improved so much with it. Being able to talk with people, being able to hear their voice, being able to distinguish their tone and being able to tell when they’re frustrated, it really gives me a lot of information that before I didn’t have.Sylas U.
I am picking up new things, recognizing feelings of the vibrations and the things around me.RaVae J.
I noticed yesterday when I was trying to boil water – which I can’t hear – and the wristband was vibrating lots. And I asked my partner, and he said yes, it was boiling. That’s really cool!Angela P.
I am always experiencing new sounds that I hadn’t heard before on a daily basis.Frank L.
I now can go into just about any place with just Buzz and not be wondering if I am going to be understood or if I can understand them.Robert L.
The more I used it the more I found out, and I wanted to keep using it.Lei W.

It’s as simple as learning to recognize patterns
When we become fluent in a language, learn to ride a bike, or refine our golf swing, we form associations with patterns of information from our physical world. Buzz is a wearable device that captures sound and translates it into vibrational patterns on the skin. With practice, these associations become automatic and a new sense is born. You’ll experience the difference on the first day you wear it. And it only gets better from there.
Want to know how and why this works?
Our technology is developed by leading neuroscientists, crafted by designers, and backed by Silicon Valley. See our TED Talk “Can we create new senses for humans?”

Buzz does not require use of an app.
Neosensory does offer a companion app for Buzz. It will be available for both iOS and Android. If you choose to connect your Buzz to the app, you can unlock additional functionality such as music mode, night mode, frequency range, and vibration intensity controls.
Buzz is water-resistant but not waterproof. You can wear Buzz in light rain, but do not submerge Buzz in water or wear it in the shower.
Depending on the microphone sensitivity and how noisy the environment is, Buzz can last over 24 hours on one full charge.
Your brain will start matching sounds to the patterns of the vibrations over time. The more you wear your Buzz, the quicker your brain will learn these patterns. Some things you can try to help your brain connect vibrations to sounds are to test sounds in different environments. Try clapping, knocking, ringing the doorbell, or pushing the test button on your fire alarm. You can also practice with the training games in the Neosensory app (available for iOS and Android).
